The Disneyland Resorts kicks off the Holiday Season, today with traditional and new park decorations and shows and surprises throughout the resort.   The holiday magic of the parks is an incredible experience to be enjoyed by young and old.

Disneyland brings back their Christmas Parade “A Christmas Fantasy” complete with our favorite characters and a visit from Santa Claus.  “Believe…in Holiday Magic” fireworks,  The Haunted Mansion with a mix of Halloween and Christmas decor and “It’s a Small World” with its 50,000 glittering lights return to the delight of park visitors.  The beautiful and famous Disneyland tree is decorated and located on Main Street.  The return of Downtown Disney’s Ice Rink will be made over to include FROZEN’s Olaf as this year’s theme.

New to Disneyland this year is the addition of holiday cheer to an old favorite.  The Jungle Cruise has been renamed the Jingle Cruise and skippers have added holiday commentary to the expedition. The snake entwined within the decorations at the entrance to the Jingle Cruise brought surprised looks and laughter to many entering the ride.   Don’t miss the beautiful FROZEN sisters, Elsa and Anna at Fantasyland.

Other favorites include a visit to “Jingle Jangle Jamboree” at Big Thunder Ranch to give Santa my list and finding the perfect place to take your picture of the beautiful Sleeping Beauty’s Castle.  The sparkling lights, snowdrifts and icicles add the perfect touch of holiday spirit.  

Disney’s California Adventures underwent their holiday makeover with decorations throughout the park beginning with the 50ft tree with vintage ornaments located on Buena Vista street.   Bug’s Land, Mad T Party in Hollywood Land and Car’s Land are lit up with their own unique decor.   Visitors can dance and sing with the “Phineas and Ferb’s Rockin’ Rollin’ Dance Party – Holiday Edition”  Enjoy delicious food, music and decorations with a Latin flair at this year’s all new “Viva Navidad” located in Paradise Gardens.

The all new California Adventure’s World of Color – Winter Dreams show will have you smiling and speechless with its beauty and holiday message.  The new show which took 3 months to program, includes 17,375,232 pixels making the viewing an incredible experience.  The show not only added 16 moving lights to Mickey’s Fun Wheel but also included 650 new lights to California’s Screamin both can be seen in the background of the show.

The amazing and incredible holiday sights and sounds can be enjoyed at Disneyland Resorts beginning Friday, November 15, 2013 through January 6, 2014.
